I'm so glad Lucia has re-opened! Her work is stunning, and I always receive compliments on my earrings. I now own four pairs -- and hope to order more. Thank you so much.

About

snou*

•○♥ 웃 ♥○• Jewelry is emotion •○♥ 웃 ♥○•
A piece of jewelry is much more than just an ordinary object. It is an object animated by emotion and inspiration. It is a container of memories, joys and feelings. My hands work each piece with care, conscience, detail, expecting each piece to carry the values of beauty I attempt to instill in them.
•○♥ 웃 ♥○• snou*jewelry is color •○♥ 웃 ♥○•
My pieces stand out through the use of color, the fine finishes and details, every piece is made by hand from start to finish, always using a great variety of materials. All metals are sterling silver.

Snou is a nomad laboratory for jewelry design. Bold, colorful and filled with exquisite details and joie de vivre!

From the Caribbean to the old continent to the southern hemisphere.

My name is Lucia. I was born and raised in the tropical island of Puerto Rico. In 2003 I moved to Germany, to learn the age old profession of manipulating metals and fire. No, not alchemy, but its sister, goldsmithing.

Then, ten years later fate would have me moving to Chile, where I now teach goldsmithing and jewelry design at various institutions and work in a project aimed at creating a community of craftspeople (www.grisalla.cl) that includes ceramicists, metalworkers, among other "fire arts".

I love jewelry, making it and teaching others. A jewel is pretty much any small and precious artwork that bears a close relationship to the body and its wearer. This close relationship makes the wearing of jewelry an intimate practice that simultaneously reflects our moods and personalities to others.

People tend to wonder if goldsmiths work solely with gold. No, the term was traditionally juxtaposed to related craft professions, such as silversmiths, whose work is to create objects of bigger scale: cups, chalices, tea sets, candle holders, etc... and whose techniques and tools are quite different to those used by jewelry makers. Despite my traditional craft education, I have a lot of JOY from working with materials outside the typical scope of goldsmithing and combining them in the most unorthodox ways in order to achieve objects which represent my aesthetic vision and surely comoemny and augment your own.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the visit!
